Winding Down the Week

imageIt’s the end of a busy week. I’m going to be away writing again next week so I’ve been trying to do as much as I can to keep my business ticking over whilst I’m gone. It’s also been the week when my personal daily routine has changed too.

My ‘to do’ list has got longer every day even as I’ve been ticking things off as fast as I can. I hate to leave things unfinished. Yet I’ve also learned that there is always another job to do. It seems it’s in the nature of things. No matter how many times I tell myself I’m going to have a gap between work and travel it’s hard to make it happen. By next Monday I’ll be down to doing only the absolute necessary things. Some stuff will slide off the list and be left undone. So why has so much had to be crammed into this week?

That’s the puzzle really. If I leave something unfinished will it matter? What would I be able to leave undone? It’s not as if I didn’t know I was going. This has been planned for six months. Perhaps I could be more organised? Or is it a result of following an intuitive life. I’m going with the flow so things pop up when least expected. Or my plans change because other people’s plans change. Over all it balances out though. Things will get done. People will be able to have what they need. I will go off with a clear head ready to enjoy another retreat. So tonight I’m winding down my week.

Later I’ll be listening in to the musical memories show of my friend Alan Cox. Taking time out before I go back to my ‘to do’ list tomorrow. And that’s really important. Having a little breathing space. Time for myself. Having a wind down time, no matter how small, will give me the energy to carry me through to a bigger chance to relax.

Day 299 of my blogging challenge.
